iTunes Review

Nine Inch Nails' second studio album brought the aggression of industrial music and the fragility of ambient to the world of pop. Trent Reznor's vocals are menacing on the ferocious “March of the Pigs” and unflinchingly immediate on the techno-gothy “Closer" and the aching “Hurt." Equally vivid is his approach to electronic production; the tracks here seem to glimmer like steel and crumble like dirt. It all makes for a powerful listen from start to finish.

Well Worth the Bucks

Derived from the original Downward Spiral the Deluxe Edition adds a value far surpassing other re-worked or expanded albums I've seem. The digital re-mastering of this album greatly benefits those with surround sound and higher-end speakers, treating the listener to a wide variety of sounds (noise, effects, samples etc...) that weren't as distinct in the original released CD.

One of the greatest albums ever....

Although I hate to say this, you really don't want to buy this from iTunes Music Store. Go to the store and buy the physical version of this album (the deluxe edition).

No need to Question....

This album is pure genius. That's it.
